I thought I should share with you how I tie my turban. Often when I go out I get asked by my fellow females “how did you tie that turban and give it that big puff in the front?” It’s a secret no more. This is how it’s done ladies.

I’m glad I have images to back it up, coz I often find it difficult to explain it to someone when they ask me on the streets. This is a tutorial to save you from those bad hair days.

Step 3: Tie a double knot in the front.

TIP: A granny knot will keep it in place. To make a Granny knot you place left over right and right over left

TIP: Do not make the knot too tight to allow for blood circulation.
